What you'll do

Ever wanted to learn how to bake pepparkakor, the traditional Swedish gingerbread cookies - ginger snaps? It is fun and easy with my mom's recipe, if you just learn a few tricks. It is a perfect family activity, but also great for team building, if you have some extra space in your kitchen.
You do not need to travel all the way to Sweden to learn the secrets for baking the best pepparkakor ever. We will do it together, independently of where you live: connect your device to the activity and I will guide you through this magic experience. Step by step you will copy all what I do, from the dough preparation, to rolling it out (as thin as you can), cutting the cookies and finally baking them.
Your life will not be the same anymore: purchased pepparkakor will become unacceptable for your and your family's palate after this hands-on experience.

I'm an Italian - Swedish dietitian. I grew up in Italy, but I have always helped my mother and my sisters baking cookies for Christmas and in general cooking and baking for our large extended family.
According to the Swedish tradition, each family prepares at least seven different kinds of cookies: and this is what I've done now for approximately sixty year, first learning from my mother and then teaching my kids and their friends.
I'm a dietitian, and therefor I look also at the health aspects of what I cook or bake. Please check also my website www.cucinalcubo.it for more information of the classes I offer. You can also find me on Instagram @cucina_al_cubo

Wonderful experience! Simonetta is such a lovely person. I was so excited to make ginger snaps — one of my favorite cookies to eat. The cookies really turned out perfectly. Simonetta gives such thoughtful instructions and understands very well this recipe that has been in her Swedish family for generations. She was able to tell me how to create the right texture of dough to ensure the best results. It’s cool that she has experimented with different golden syrup substitutes to know what I can use based on what’s in my kitchen! I will be making this ginger snap recipe every season, not just for Christmas !!!! Thanks again Simonetta !!

I bought this experience as a Christmas present for a friend of mine. She really enjoyed it. Simonetta is a great host even in the virtual setting. She guides you through the procedure step-by-step and is very flexible with any accommodations you might need.

This was a lot of fun and easy with excellent cookies that are interesting and different! Simonetta is a great hostess and explains everything really well and tells excellent stories to go with the cooking. The preparatory info was accurate and excellent. The time was quite adequate to actually get great results! I recommend this to anyone interested in cookies and/or having a fun experience with others!

Great experience! Thanks! The introduction about the "story" of the recipe and how this has evolved throughout the past centuries, and up to the last generations of your family, has been a very good starting point! The assistance I received during the session was great - I am definitely not a good baker, and I actually managed to bake some decent biscuits...I'm very proud of myself!!! Thank you Simmo!
